SD/HI/SA Family Promise

Family Promise February 3-10

Happy 2019!

It's almost time for another round of Hotel St. Dunstan: February 3 through February 10. It is likely that we will have 3 families. Brian, currently employed as an engineer and going through chemotherapy for lymph node cancer, has a 16-year-old son. Jennifer has a full-time job with Delta Dental. She has an 8-year-old son. Jarwanda stayed with us in November, and she has accepted a job in New Orleans, so she will probably be off to New Orleans by early February. Family Promise is looking for a new family in time for our week.

As always, we are excited about the extraordinary opportunity to help families make the transition from homelessness to sustained independence -- while keeping their families together.

Please see below the many ways that you can help -- by bringing and serving meals, spending the night, and other ways.

Don't hesitate to call one of the coordinators named below if you have any questions or suggestions.

Thank you for all that you do!
